“However, this is utterly unrelated to gas prices.”

So? Why do you make that comment, Dabbadu? This is a perfectly legitimate article for Newsville, Have you read the guidelines? That ight be a useful thing to do.

TX, airliners effect gas prices.

I'm driving from NC to ND, so that uses a lot of gas. If I flew it would save gas. If we all saved gas the demand would be less. Too bad TSA makes it such a PItA to fly.

Wonderful news that China will pay a US company. How much stock does China already own in Boeing. China holds a large interest in our debt - Treasury. I plan to learn Chinese before I die so I will be able to converse with our Chinese ruling party.

The aerospace industry competition is pretty fierce. Since I work in this industry and see the headlong rush to subcontract our shop and parts building work to China, I fear it's only a matter of time before they take our technology and start producing their own aircraft. They've done it in other industries, so why not this one as well.
They specialize in taking our technology and using it against us.
Japan did the same thing to a lot of our industries after World War two.
